Reasons for a Tesla Supercharger in College Station, TX:

  1. Close the large gap in Supercharger network between Houston and Waco, along highway 6.
  2. College Station is by large majority a student town. Most people are renting apartments and houses, and have no ability to charge at home overnight. Using 110V is not really useful, and throwing extension cords over parking lots is dangerous. We need a place to charge.
  3. During Aggie football games, and other sporting events the city gets flooded with Teslas from all over Texas. They all want to charge their cars while at the game. This overwhelms what little destination chargers there are. If there was a supercharger, they could charge before or after the game and continue on their way.

To support these claims, here is a discussion from the TMC forums: https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/supercharger-college-station-tx.128614/

There are many other threads on this on closed Facebook groups like Houston Tesla Owners (group is closed, so links will only be visible to members), like this one: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HoustonTeslaClub/?comment_id=1808205925970944

There are several great locations to install the supercharger: 

  1. Post Oak mall - right off highway 6! Has a mall and multiple restaurants around it. The parking lot is never full. Best of all, I have contacted the management and they would be more than happy to host the supercharger there.
  2. HEB on the intersection of Wellborn and 2818. Big parking lot. Students like shopping at HEB, so they can charge while shopping. Convenient location close to everything. 24/7 HEB supermarket.
  3. College Station Walmart on Brother blvd. Close to Highway 6, huge parking lot, close to restaurants and has a 24/7 Walmart.

I have submitted a request on Tesla website, as did many whom I spoke to about this issue, but so far no news. Please build a supercharger in College Station, TX!
